Konnan has faced well-documented health struggles in recent years, which is a common occurrence among wrestlers as they age. He has dealt with various ailments, including COVID-19, hip and heart surgery, and more recently, kidney issues. Naturally, fans have been concerned about how he’s doing.

During a recent episode of K100, Konnan discussed his future plans and provided an optimistic update on his health. Despite the challenges he has faced, he remains hopeful and determined as he moves forward.

“I was doing terrible and now I’m doing better,” he said. “I’m on dialysis, but I need a kidney donor. But other than that, yeah, I’m doing better.”

As we previously reported, according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Konnan’s health has seen a lot of improvement ever since he started going on dialysis, especially because he can finally get better sleep now.


Konnan’s health has gotten better since going on dialysis. Before that point, his kidney issues led to all kinds of problems including the loss of taste in his mouth and he lost 70 pounds and was getting maybe two hours of sleep a night, which spiraled things even worse. It is a lot better now, as he can taste, and he’s getting sleep.

We’re sending out our best to Konnan during this time. He’s given a lot to the pro wrestling business, and he means a lot to fans.

Konnan’s recent appearance at the WWE Hall of Fame for Rey Mysterio’s induction should prove that pro wrestling fans haven’t forgotten about him at all. We’re hoping for even better news in the future regarding Konnan’s health.
